New Matte Stone Finish & 16 Fresh Designs Offer Nature’s Beauty
and Superior Performance for Any Environment
TEMPLE, Texas (September 27, 2021) – As the spaces in which people live and work continue to intertwine, the new “resi-merical” trend has emerged that transforms the line between residential and commercial design. Wilsonart, a world-class innovator of next-generation engineered surfaces, today announced the introduction of the High Pressure Laminate (HPL) Stone Collection designed to offer surfaces that seamlessly enhance all types of environments and create comfortable and inviting spaces. The line of new HPL designs delivers affordable luxury with a new textured finish and 16 designs all reminiscent of various natural stone surfaces.
“There is a collective movement to create spaces that feel nurturing and comforting within our homes, workplaces and communities,” said Danielle Mikesell, global vice president of marketing and design at Wilsonart. “The HPL Stone Collection evokes a sense of tranquility with a new pleasantly tactile but soft-to-the-touch surface and aspirational stone looks inspired by nature. The result is a collection that effortlessly transforms the spaces in which we work, play and live.”
The new HPL Stone Collection’s Fieldstone finish features a textured matte sheen that is less reflective than other stone surfaces, offering a more casual look with authentic characteristics and veining details. The collection also includes 16 new designs inspired by natural stone looks in on-trend colors, including brown, taupe, brick and turmeric tones, as well as neutral tones of warm white and light beige that offer warmth to any residential or commercial setting.
